Rain on goats parade doesn't dampen spirits (with video)

"Roofing Of Goats" parade: The inaugural pilgrimage was hampered by rain, high winds and snow.
  • Filed Under

The first-ever "Roofing of the Goats" parade proceeded Saturday morning with the goats safely housed indoors, away from cold and rainy weather that even brought some snowflakes around Sister Bay and the Door Peninsula.

Although the weather was too nasty for goats to be roofed on top of the grass-covered roof at Al Johnson's Swedish Restaurant in Sister Bay, the inaugural parade carried on.

Strong winds, heavy rain and even snowfall did little to dampen spirits, even though not even the "proxy'' goats could participate. Instead, wood cut-outs of goats satisfied about a few dozen parade-goers.

The goats that belong to Al Johnson's would have been led to the restaurant where they periodically graze on the roof of the restaurant over the summer. More photos will appear in Wednesday's edition of Your Key to the Door Weekly.
